GLASGOW, that the dibility of the petitioner, has been, and is such, from the effects of old age and 
affliction as to incapacitate him to provide the common necessaries of life. And it appears also from a 
deposition laid before the Committee, that the petitioner was at Guilford about the time of the battle at 
that place. And it further appears by the Deosition of Richard TAYLOR a soldier, that the petitioner was a 
Soldier in the Revolutionary War and under the command of Colo. HILL, that he was in the battle fought 
at Guilford Court house, but it does not appear for what time the petitioner enlisted or what time he 
actually served. Upon this State of the facts it does not appear to the Committee that the petitioner has 
any particular claim upon the State, more than any other Citizen whose youthful days has been spent in 
the Armies of his Country and has become poor in his old age & thereby is unable to support himself, 
neither does it appear that the disabilities set four th in his Petition has arisen from wounds or any other 
services rendered to the State in an ou r of danger, nor does it in any way appear that his indigence or

Annice Gorham Wilson, Former Slave, age 108 

Daily Reflector, April 1, 1938 

"Annice Gorham WILSON, Negro woman of Pactolus township, is believed to be one of the oldest 
persons receiving aid under the Social Security old-age benefit program in the State. Annice claims to be 
108 years old and acquaintances, both white and colored, in the section bear her out. Affidavits in the 
office of K. T. FUTRELL do not give her exact age, but two statements declare she was in her "middle 
age" years and tears ago. In fact, she has a living son who was not the first born, whose age is reported in 
the 80's. The son, Jeff WILSON, is blind and lives with his mother. The aged Negro woman, bent with the 
years, is only something like four feet tall. Despite her age , she can see and her mind cotinues clear. Up 
until two weeks ago she was up and about the house, but now is confined to her bed. According to 
records, she was a slave in the home of the late Albert WILSON of Bethel. She moved to the section 
known as Yankee Hall following her marriage. She is declared to have lived on the farm of B. B. 
SATTERTHWAITE for the past 50 years. Annice had 14 children, nine of which are still living. She has 35 
grandchildren, 83 great grandchildren and 25 great-great grandchildren." 

Daily Reflector, April 20, 1938 

"Annice Gorham WILSON, reputed to be 108 years old, died this morning."

Mrs. Biggs COX, highly respected and greatly beloved woman of the Hassell section, died at her home 
there last Friday afternoon following an illness of two weeks. She had been in failing health for several 
months, but was able to be up and visit with her children until about two weeks ago, when she was 
forced to her bed. The daughter of the late Thomas and Mima HART, prominent family of Pitt County, 
Mrs. COX was born near Ayden 67 years ago, where she grew up and married while a young woman. 
When 13 years old, she joined the Christian church in Ayden, and was a loyal member of that faith until 
her death, or for more than half a century. In the latter part of 1915 she moved with her family to this 
county and made her home near Hassell, where she was soon recognized as a good neighbor and loyal 
friend, a good woman who found peace and joy in her kindly acts for others. Although she reared a large 
family of her own, she found time to help others and to hold her home open to the needy. Eleven chil- 
dren, all of whom are now living, were born to the union, and in addition to caring for and rearing her

Weekly Herald, Wed. , June 30, 1937 

J. K. ROSS, one of this section's oldest and most highly respected citizens, died at his home here early last 
Friday morning following a long period of declining health. He was confined to his bed for more than 
two weeks before his death, his conditions being critical during most of that time. Infirmities of age and 
complications contributed to his death. Mr. ROSS was the son of the late J. R. and Margaret E. ROSS, 
members of prominent Pitt County families. They moved to this county soon after their marriage many 
years ago and settled here. Mr. ROSS was born 78 years ago. For a long number of years he was engaged 
in the Merchantile business here, but for some time prior to his death he devoted his time to farming. 
Despite his advanced age, he was unusually active until his health began to fail him several months ago. 
Although not a member of any church, he attended the Primitive Baptist services regularly, contributing 
freely and doing much work of a religious nature. He was widely anf favorably known and held the high 
esteem of neighbors and numerous other friends throughout this section. Mrs. ROSS with one son, Hugh 
ROSS, of Philadelphia, survives. He also leaves one brother, Mr. J. C. ROSS, the last of a family of eight 
children. Funeral services were conducted at the late home last Sunday afternoon at 2: 30 o'clock by Elder

Funeral services were held in the local Missionary Baptist church here last Saturday afternoon at 3 O'clock 
for Mrs. J. H. ROBERSON, Jr., one of this section's most highly esteemed and greatly beloved citizens. The 
end came peacefully at her home on Main Street about midnight Thursday, following an illness of nearly 
eight weeks, during the early part of which she suffered an attack of influenza and later pneumonia and 
complications developed to cause death. Rev. E. C. SHOE, her pastor, conducted the last rites, assisted by 
Rev. James M. PERRY, pastor of the local Christian church. Interment was in the New Cemetery here. Mrs. 
Verna Little ROBERSON, 59 years old, was born in Pitt County, the daughter of the late I. H. and Delia 
GATNOR LITTLE, prominent family of that section. Thirty-seven years ago she married Mr. J. H. 
ROBERSON, Jr., marking the beginning of a useful life for this, her adopted town. In the home she was an 
understanding companion, a thoughtful mother, and in her every walk of life a true Christian ideal was 
ever present. She was at home with all classes, including the section's very poor people. She willingly 
administered to the sick and needy, and in her life and deeds all people found a worthy example to 
follow. In the advancement of the religious and civic interests of this community, she always rendered a 
valuable aid and was an active member of the local Baptist church for many years. Mrs. ROBERTSON'S 
passing brought sadness to the hearts of many whom she had befriended time after time as well as to 
those with whom she came in contact daily, and the high esteem in which she was held was exemplified 
in the extensive floral offering and the large number attending the last rites to pay mute tribute to her 
memory. Besides her husband she is survived by three children, Mrs. Geo. L. MADRE, of Windsor; and 
Vance L. ROBERSON and Miss Delia ROBERSON, of Robersonville. She also leaves three brothers and

Benjamin Venters Murdered 

Tarboro Press, Sat., May 21, 1836 

[Taken from the New Bern Spectator]..." A few days ago, a negro was committed to the jail of this county, 
charged with the murder of his master, Mr. Benjamin VENTERS, late farmer on Swift Creek. Mr. VEN- 
TERS, it appears, had been at a log-rolling on the previous evening, accompanied by family. He had 
returned home before them, and when they arrived next morning they found him dead, lying in the 
fireplace, shockingly burned. Nearly one half of his head had been consumed. An inquest was convened, 
and without examination, the jury came to the conclusion that he had come to his death by having fallen 
into the fire. Suspicion first rested on the prisoner in consequence of his having denied being at home 
during the time that intervened between the return of his master and that of his family, as he had been 
seen on the premises during that time by a white man who was passing the house. This gave rise to 
inquiry, and two negroes strengthened the suspicions by asserting that the prisoner had formerly made 
an attempt to poison his master, and having failed to execute his wicked design, he had sworn that "he 
would yet he his death." This, they said, he had told them himself. When this information was given, the 
neighbors passed into Pitt county, where Mr. VENTERS had been buried a few days before, had him 
disinterred, and a new inquest convened; when it was found that his skull had been split, and his collar 
bone broken, apparently by blows with an axe. An axe had previously been found near the house in 
which the deceased lay, which was stained with blood."

Jesse King Left Pitt County in 1918 

Found in the Daily Reflector, Sept. 14, 1950. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"The North effected a reconciliation with the South this week when a former Greenville Negro returned 
here for a few days visit with relatives before going back to New York and his "temporary" home. 
Though a prodigal for 32 years, Jesse KING, grandson of Moses KING, who was for a time a Negro 
policeman on the Greenville force during the middle 1890s, spent a few days here reminicing over 
familiar sites of his childhood and with friends he had known before leaving for work in the north. KING 
now resides at Fort Washington, Long Island, New York, and has been employed with one of the Brook- 
lyn branches of the Post Office as a postal clerk. Having lived in New York since leaving the South in 
1918, the 57-year-old Negro has established a home in New York but still considers Greenville and Pitt 
County his real "home." That fact was strongly brought out when he stated yesterday he is coming back 
here in three years when his retirement from the postal service can begin. As a yOung school boy Jesse 
worked in his grandfather's meat market, the first of its kind to be operated in town by a Negro. Located 
in the first block on Fifth Street east of Five Points, he delivered parcels of meat to his granddad's custom- 
ers during the afternoons. After finishing his schooling here he went away, never to return for any length 
of time. Prior to going to work with the government, Jesse worked at odd jobs in Rocky Mount and in 
New York City. Now he has a wife and two children, both of whom are married and have children. When 
his retirement begins in 1953, he oplans to bring his family down here to live permanently. It will be hard 
to leave his friends and associates in the north, particularly those friendships he has formed in the church 
of which he is a trustee and deacon. "But, after all, a person can't forget his raising," he says. 

Lovey Green Daniel, Former Slave, Age 112 

Daily Reflector, Thurs., July 2, 1953. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

Honored on Birthday — Lovey Green DANIEL, whose age is reckoned at 112 years, was honored with a 
dinner Sunday by relatives at her daughter's home on the John ELKS farm, RFD Grimesland. An old 
Bible's record of the aged Negro's birth, relatives say, was destroyed when a former home burned several 
years ago, but they set the date at June 28, 1841. Included in her genealogy, they further state, are 55 
grandchildren, 126 great-grandchildren, and 68 great-great grandchildren. [Photo included in article]

A Benjamin FORBES was living in Bath Town in 1748-50. On Sept. 10, 1748, he purchased 440 acres on the 
N/S of Tar River from Walter KELLY. On June 15, 1749, Benjamin purchased Lot #13 in Bath Town from 
John TRUMAN, and on Aug. 21, 1749, he purchased 200 acres on the E/S of Bath Town Creek from 
Denby and Ann SULLIVAN (land that included Teach's Point and was formerly owned by John MAT- 
TOCKS and Philip SHUTE). This Benjamin FORBES died by 1752, as evidenced by three land transactions 
between 1752 and 1755 on behalf of his estate. I would like to know more about the life of Benjamin 
FORBES, such as his wife's name, siblings, children and any connection to the early FORBES family of 
Pitt County.

John Hodges Family Letter, 1915 



A photocopy of this letter is found in the Elizabeth Moore Collection, PC 1406. 14, NC Archives, Raleigh, 
NC. The letter, which is unsigned, was apparently written by one of the children of Francis P. Hodges. It 
was dated July 28, 1915 and postmarked Pantego, NC. It was sent to Frank M. Hodges of Greenville, N. 
C. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"My Dear Frank; July 27—1915 

Your letter came to-day, tho' not in time to reply by to-day's mail — I'm sorry that my stock of information 
is so limited; but I know that my (our) Grandfather, John HODGES, was the Son of James & Charity 
JUDKINS HODGES; was born during the yr. 1792; was married in 1814 to Sallie, daugher of Harry and 
Millie GRIFFIN PERRY; Grand father died June 1880. in the 88th year of his age— Grand mother Jan. 6. 
1881 in 83 yr. To them were born 9 children; 8 sons, Harry, Frank P., John Gray, Edwin Gorham, Noah 
Benjamin, Robert T, James Redding (who died when a youth) James Wilson and one daughter, Mary 

Louisa Grandfather had two Brothers, and two sisters Simon & James, both younger than himself. 

They were all born 8 miles north of Washington, Baufort County, N. C. Grand father, as you know, was 
born, lived & died on the same farm — was a large land owner and a large slave owner — He & his wife 
were members of the Primitive Baptist ch. & were good, honest, intelligent people. 
The oldest son, Harry HODGES, married twice, 1st to Marcella KEEL her Father's name was Sam of Pitt 
County, 2nd to Malinda ASKEW of Martin County — The 2nd Son (my Father) Francis P. married Miriam 
W. ROBINSON, daughter of Benjamin & Sallie WALLACE ROBINSON of Carteret Co. N. C. To them 
were born 11 children, four sons and seven daughters, 3 of each are living. John Gray HODGES married 
Mary Etta STANCELL daughter of Henry & Margaret STANCELL of Pitt County — had 8 or nine children, 

one only, living Edwin Gorham HODGES married Olivia EWELL Parents, Jesse & Eliza of Martin 

County, left 9 children 4 are living, (one of them John Walter HODGES having died during last month in 
Jax. Fla.) I guess. Noah Benjamin HODGES married Marth LATHAM daughter of Alfred & Lucinda 
HARDISON LATHAM of Beaufort County , died during the Civil War, leaving 5 children. Robert T. 
HODGES married Ann Eliza LATHAM daughter of Dempsey & Marina GRIFFIN LATHAM of Beaufort 
County left three children, one son & 2 daughters. James Wilson HODGES was twice married; 1st to Mary 
BROWN, daughter of Richard & Nancy BROWN of near Greenville, Pitt Co.— 2nd to Amanda 
STANCELL daughter of Henry & Margaret STANCELL left 6 children 3 sons & 3 daughters. Mary Louisa 
HODGES (only daughter of John & Sallie HODGES) was married in 1853 to John WARD of Martin 

County, N. C. To them were born 7 children 3 of whom 2 sons & 1 daughter are now living 

Richard HODGES, Brother of John HODGES was cousin Hetty GORHAM'S Father but I don't know who 
he married; perhaps you know. He lived where cousin Church G. died — left one child who married Mr. 
Edwin GORHAM, & left 5 children 4 sons & 1 daughter — 2 are living 

James HODGES, Brother of John HODGES married Jenny HODGE, of Beaufort Co. and left 4 children 1 
son & 3 daughters — 

Frank, I don't know whether you can make anything of this rigamyrole or not — I have neen told that 
Grandfather H's grand father came from Virginia don't know who told me or if it was true — but this is as 
far back as I can go — 

I have often wished I had asked him about his people. I surely would like to have known, & probably, he 
would like to have told me — but you know he was a very reserved man, & think I was always afraid of 
him — and yet, tho he seemed very stern to us children, I know he was a very harmless man. In his stern, 
reserved way I know he was kind to all around him — 'Am going to get me a Type writer for if I don't, no 
one will be able to decipher my scribbling after a while — Crops are good — "am making a nice lot of 
Butter — Much love for all, from us 

It was 20 minutes after I read the clipping in your last letter before I saw the significance of the location of 
the mistletoe on the preachers coat."

"State of North Carolina Pitt County} 

Personally appeared before me, Marshal Dickinson one of the Justices of the Peace for the County afore-

ecution for perjury, John HATHAWAY came home with James CASON, (father of the deponant) in 
company also with Susan HATHAWAY, when deponant learned from them the event of Major HARDEES 
trial — John HATHAWAY observed that he had got the old man where he wanted him, and he meant to 
fix his Son (Alfred) — James CASON made answer that "leave my daughter out & I don't care how he 
fixed the others — to which said HATHAWAY replied that he meant to break them both up- and further

week at which Major Abraham HARDEE was tried for perjury, & before the trial, he Aldridge MOORE 
having a demand against Robert THOMAS, applied to him for payment, when the said Thomas replied 
that he had the money but did not like to pay it, because he said that Major HARRIS, James CASON, John 
HATHAWAY & himself had a suit or prosecution in Court agst. old Major HARDEE about to be tried, and 
they had agreed if sd. HARDEE got clear & the Costs should go against them to go shares in the expences 
& in that case should want to use the money for that purpose — And further deponant saith not —

Son of L. A. Mayo Accidently Shot 

Eastern Reflector, Greenville, NC, Tues., Oct. 30, 1900 

"A few days ago Mr. L. A. MAYO, who lives about three miles from town, went over in Greene county to 
attend some business. As his wife and children would be left alone while he was away, he took a pistol 
out of a bureau drawer where he kept it locked up and put it in his wife's dressing case, telling her she 
could use it if used during his absense. Later their 8 year old son, Willie, found the pistol in the dresser 
and took it out to play with. The little fellow had the pistol by the barrel and amused himself by pulling 
the trigger and seeing the hammer rise. He pulled it too far and the weapon was discharged, the ball 
passing through the boy's knee and grazing the arm of his baby brother sitting near by. Willie is getting 
along with his wound as well as could be expected. It is fortunate that the accident was no worse."

Benjamin Joyner's Lost Mare 

Newbern Herald, New Bern, NC, Feb. 2, 1809 

"Strayed or Stolen- From the Subscriber on the 24th of January, near Beaufort, Carteret County, a Black 
Mare, inclined to be roan near the flanks, with a number of saddle spots, her tail has been cut, and drags 
her hind feet considerable, 5 feet and perhaps an inch high, 7 years old, very long legged and is with foal, 
as forward as the 1st of May. As she is my riding beast I presume she is well known among the Baptists, 
where I have travelled, and I wish them and all my friends to watch for her, and if found to send her to 
me in Pitt County. If she is stolen, I will give 25 dollars reward, if strayed I will pay all reasonable charges 

Benjamin JOYNER" 

T. A. Vinson, Counterfeiter 

New Bern Daily Times, New Bern, NC, Jan. 5, 1869 
"A man named T. A. VINSON, from Pitt county, was detected and arrested yesterday morning for at- 
tempting to pass a bill at Patterson's, that he had changed from a five to a fifty dollar note. The figures he 
used he had cut out of three 50 cent pieces of scrip which were found on his person, and the work was 
miserably done, only a part of the figures being covered. He was taken before Mr. LEHMAN, who put 
him under $200 bail to await his trial before Superior Court, which not obtaining, he was put in jail. A 
man who would attempt to pass such miserably manufactored stuff, should be sent to a lunatic asylum, 
rather than a prison. A person that was half witted, would have known better than to have tried it." 

Shooting at Ballards' 

Daily Reflector, Greenville, NC, Mar. 7, 1910 

"Dr. J. H. HUDSON Seriously Wounds Mr. Jed ELKS. 

News came by telephone this morning, that Dr. J. H. HUDSON, a physician who has been located at 
Ballard's X Roads the past year, had shot Mr. Jed ELKS, a merchant there. While particulars are meagre, 
the report says five shots were fired by HUDSON and that ELKS was seriously wounded. It was further 
stated that the two men had been out with each other for some time, and that as HUDSON was on the 
eve of moving elsewhere they got together this morning to settle the matter. 

After the shooting Dr. HUDSON drove to Farmville to surrender himself to officers, and from there 
telephoned to Sheriff TUCKER. He stated that Mr. ELKS fired the first shot. 

Dr. E. A. MOYE, who went out to examine Mr. ELKS, says he was struck by only one ball, which 
entered the back just above the hip and lodged under the skin in the side. The ball was easily removed 
and it is thought he will soon recover from the injury. 

Policeman G. A. CLARK, of Farmville, reached Greenville about 2 o'clock with Dr. HUDSON, and 
turned him over to the sheriff."

deeded land to John WILLIAMS. This Edward WILLIAMS, Jr. may be mine, but would like proof.

Ferd Barnhill, Aged Colored Man, Dies at Home Here 
Daily Reflector, Tues., Aug. 27, 1935 

Ferd BARNHILL, about 70 years of age, on of the best known colored men of this city, died at his home 
here last night. Although funeral arrangements had not been completed today, it was said that final rites 
would be held tomorrow afternoon. "Uncle Ferd," as he was known to hundreds of the older residents of 
the city, years ago constituted a "one man" street department here. He looked after street cleaning for a 
number of years and in 1915 when the new post office building was erected here became employed by the 
government. He was retired at the age of 65 on pension, and since that time has been engaged in various 
lines of business. Ferd was always interested in fire-fighting, and was one of the organizers of the "Rough 
and Ready" colored fire department here. He appeared before the Board of Aldermen on a number of 
occasions in recent years to ask for funds for his company, and because of his loyalty to the community, 
usually got what he asked. He was one of the prime forces behind the building of the Sycamore Hill 
Baptist Church. Ferd had always exerted a great influence in the religious life of his race and was one of 
the mainstays of the denomination. He was interested in the cause of the education of members of his 
race and used his influence in all movements looking, to increasing the advantages of the colored race. He 
was also said to have been prominently identified with the fraternal life of the city and will be buried 
with honors of one of the local lodges, it was reported today. One of the highest type representatives of 
his race, because of his loyalty and service, the death of this aged and humble colored man was received 
with sorrow by both white and colored people.

The Bill of Complaint of Alfred MOYE Executor of James W. MOYE deced, and of Abram D. MOYE an 
infant by his next friend and Guardian Alfred MOYE against Moses T. MOYE and Elbert MOYE. 
Humbly Complaining Sheweth unto your Honor your orator aforesaid that, 

1st In 1854 Cloadicea S NETTLES died testate. Her will was admitted to probate in Pitt County Court at 
its November Term 1854, and William J MOYE one of the Executors therein appointed duly qualified as Such, 
2nd In and by Said will the testatrix bequeathed to your Orator for the use of her nephew James W 
MOYE negro Woman Jane and her Child Laurena and at the death of the Said James "She gave" the Said 
Jane and her increase to Such Children of the Said James as may Survive him as follows, to each child one 
negro of the increase Should there be Sufficent and the excess if any "She left" to be divided between her 
nephews Moses T. and Elbert MOYE and in Case the Said James leaves no lawful children then all to her 
nephews, above named. 

3 The Executor assented to the legacy and delivered the Said Slaves Jane and Laurena to your 
Orator as Trustee aforesaid under Said Will. A copy of the Same is hereunto annexed and your Orator 
prays to refer to the Same as a part of this Bill. 

4th The Said James W. MOYE died Shortly thereafter leaving a will which was admitted to probate in 
Pitt County Court at the November Term 1855 of the Court- By Said will he appointed your orator his 
executor and your orator duly qualified as Executor 

5th The Said Testator left Surviving him only one Child; the Complaintant Abram D MOYE, who is 
an infant under the age of 21 years, 

6th Your Orator has Settled the Debts of the Estate and assumed the Guardianship of Said 
Complaintant under the appointment made in the will of his testaor. A Copy of Said Will is herewith filed 
which he refers to as a part of this Bill. 

7 The Said Slave Jane has had increase Since the death of the Said Cloadicea S NETTLES as follows, 
to wit, Henry born in 1855; Cora born in 1857 (and died in 1858) boy Haywood born in last of 1858. 

8 Your Orator is desirous of closing the Administration of the estate of his testator and also of 
discharging the trusts on the Will of the Said Cloadicea S NETTLES by delivering to the Defendants 
Moses T. and Elbert Such of the increase of the Said Jane as they may be entitled to under the will of the 
Said Cloadicea S NETTLES, but he is unable to do So by reason of Doubts which have arisen as to the 
proper Construction of the Will of the Said Cloadicea- 

9 Your Orator Claims to hold the Slave Laurena in his Capacity of Executor of James W MOYE and 
as a part of the Estate of his testator, 

10 He also Claims that his ward & the defendants are tenants in common of the increase of Jane or 
that he has the right in behalf of his Ward, the Said Abram D MOYE to elect out of the increase of the Said 
Jane born Since the death of the Said Cloadicea, Such Child of the Said Jane as he may deem most advan- 
tageous to the interest of his Ward. 

11 The Defendants Moses and Elbert Claim that the Said Laurena was only bequeathed to James W 
MOYE for his life & is included in the limitation over of the increase of Said Jane to the children of the 
Said James & to Said defendants, 

12 They also insist that if that be not So then your Orator has no right to elect as Guardian aforesaid 
but that he must retain for his ward the child of the Said Jane born just after the death of the Said 
Cloadicea, to wit, the child named Henry- 

To the end that the defendants aforesaid may answer the premises and that your Orator may be advised 
by your Honorable Court in the premises and have Such other and further relief in the premises as to the 
Court may Seem proper- May it please the Court to Cause the Said Defendants to appear and answer the 
premises by Subpoena from your Honorable Court &c and your Orator will ever pray Donnell } Sol

Weekly Herald, Robersonville, NC, Wed., May 8, 1940 

Alonza S. ALLEN, well known county farmer, died at his home near Everetts last Saturday afternoon at

worse later in the day, and he suffered a heart attack which resulted in his death. Up until his attack last 
Friday, Mr. Allen was thought to have been in his usual health. A hard worker despite a physical handi- 
cap he had gone ahead with his farming operations as usual, and was planning an active work this spring 
and summer. Mr. Allen was born in Pitt County 65 years ago, the son of the late John and Armanda 
HADDOCK ALLEN. He spent his early life in the county of his birth, and when a young man married 
Miss Stella WILLIAMS. About thirty years ago he moved to this county and located near Everetts. In the 
ensuing years and by honest toil he overcame hardships and was held in high esteem by all who knew 
him. He joined the Christian church when a young man, but later associated with the Primitive Baptist 
faith. Mr. Allen was a kind and thoughtful neighbor and was interested in the advancement of his com- 
munity. He never shirked a responsibility and valued the higher ideals of life. Funeral services were 
conducted Sunday afternoon at 2: 30 o'clock from the home of Elder B. S. COWIN of the church at Bear 
Grass. Interment was in the Redbanks church cemetery near Greenville in Pitt County. Besides his widow

Queries 



I am looking for information on the two James PARKERS in the 1850 Pitt Co. Census. One James 
PARKER, age 64, is married to Winny and has a daughter Jane. I believe this is my Mary Jane who 
married Joab TYSON. The other James PARKER, age 37, is married to Mary. They both have twins. How 
are both James PARKERS related? My grandfather, Charles TYSON, is supposed to have lived with his 
grandfather Parker after his mothers death in 1867. 1 believe that Winny was deceased at that time. Some 
published sources have these two men as the same person.

I am seeking information on the parents and families of Enoch POLLARD, b. ca. 1798, d. 1860, who

also like to know where they lived and are buried.

Estate records, dated ca. 1836, of Ichabod ALLEN, formerly of Pitt Co. (brother of Aaron Tyson ALLEN 
and Thomas ALLEN, both of Pitt Co.) show that Samuel ALLEN of Perry Co., AL as administrator of his 
estate. These Estate records refer to Sally BLAND, wife of John BLAND, both of Pitt Co. Sally was a 
common nickname for Sarah at that time, and I presume that her maiden name was Allen. Can anyone 
shed any light on this Bland/ Allen connection?

What was the maiden name of Sarah, who married Silas AVERITT in Pitt Co. between 1810-1820? Silas 
Averitt is on the 1820 Pitt Co. Census and the widow, Sarah, is on the 1830 Pitt Co. Census. Sarah was

Mrs. George Adams Loses Three Children 

Charlotte Daily Observer, Charlotte, NC, June 1, 1912 

Greenville, N. C, May 31 — Special news reached here of a distressing occurence just across the Pitt line in 
Craven county, in which three children of George ADAMS lost their lives. His wife was doing some 
washing in yard while the children, the eldest 8 and the youngest 1- year- old played nearby. Noises were 
heard from a nest occupied by a setting hen, when Mrs. ADAMS told the eldest boy to go throw the fowl 
off the nest. The boy went and without looking, put his hand into the nest to catch the hen. He quickly 
withdrew it crying that she had pecked him. The second boy volunteered to throw off the hen, but soon 
screamed that he had been pecked also. The mother rushed to the nest and found a rattlesnake in it, and 
to her horror, saw that the snake had bitten both the boys. In her anxiety to do something for the older 
boys, the 1- year- old child was forgotten for the time being, and when she returned for it, found that it 
had climbed over in the tub of water and was drowned. The two boys that had been bitten by the rattle- 
snake died the same day, and all three children were buried together in the same grave. 

Mrs. W. H. Mizelle Mysteriously Poisoned 

Eastern Reflector, Fri., Sept. 14, 1900 

Mrs. W. H. MIZELLE, formerly Miss Pennie BULLOCK, of Oakley, died mysteriously on last Thursday, 
and was quietly buried Friday morning. Her body was exhumed Saturday and the Coroner held a post 
mortem examination. It is supposed from circumstantial evidence that she was poisoned by her husband. 
The jury brought in a verdict that the deceased came to her death by causes unknown to them, but 
ordered that her stomach and liver be sent to the State chemist for a chemical examination to see whether 
or not she was poisoned. Mr. MIZELLE had been to Dr. WARREN and questioned him previously as to 
whether or not she had consumption, and Dr. WARREN told him that she never had any of the symp- 
toms of that disease. Mr. MIZELLE insisted that she did have consumption and that he was afraid to stay 
with her, as he feared she had it and was liable to drop dead any time. She had been apparently well up 
to Thursday. It is said Mr. MIZELLE had been mistreating his wife for several months and on last 
Wednesday went to Washington to get her some medicine. Thursday morning Mrs. MIZELLE had a hard 
chill and her gave her some medicine and went off and left her. When he returned later she was dead and 
wanting to bury her soon as possible he had her buried Friday morning. Mr. MIZELLE left Saturday 
morning for Ocracoke on a pleasure trip, knowing that his wife's body would be taken up for an exami- 
nation. The woman's stomach has been sent to Raleigh to the State Chemist.

"The Comittee of Propositions and Grievances to whom was refered the petition of Richard JORDAN of 
Pitt County praying for assistance, having considered the subject, respectfully- Report 
That the Petitioner alledges, that he served in the Militiua during the revolutionary War, and performed 
several tours of duty, to wit the first tour of five months service, under Capt. CANNON, to the State of 
Georgia when he assisted at the battle of Brier creek, he having been drafted for that purpose, secondly a 
tour to Charleston as a substitute, and two others of short duration- The Petitioners five months tour, is 
attested by the affidavit of Joseph THIGPEN and is believed in his neighborhood that he did perform the 
other service as stated- Your Comittee is satisfied that the Petitioner is old- that he has lost the sight of 
one of his eyes since the War and is afflicted with the palsy, which disables him to gain a support from 
labour, and from irregular habits in his early days it would appear he has failed to provide for old age- 
Although your Comittee have no reason to disbelieve the Petitioners statement as to his service sup- 
ported by the exparte affidavit of THIGPEN, yet they doubt the propriety of granting assistance in 
application of the kind except upon the strongest testimony, & that given in the most solemn manner 
according to some selected rule, to act upon any other principle, would as your Comittee conceive, not be 
justifiable- they therefore recomend the adoption of accompaning resolution 
Resolved that the prayer of the Petitioner be not allowed"

"State vs Calhoon MOORE} Examination of the deft, in this case 28 day of November 1861- 
The said Calhoon MOORE being questioned on the above matter saith that he is not guilty as charged in 
the warrant- that the assault was made by the other party towit the said Simon MILLS Jr and declines 
any further answer, but claims the assistance of Councel 

And thereupon the following persons were sworn on the part of the State- Wm. C. MCGOWAN was duly 
sworn on the Holy EvangeUists according to law and testified as follows- That he was at the shop of 
Ashley KNOX in Greenville a short time before sun set when he said the two persons in the act of wres- 
tling as he supposed- Very soon afterwards I saw a knife in the hands of sd. Calhoon MOOR and heard 
MILLS say he has drawn a knife on me, and he struck at MOORE with a stick- 1 saw MOORE after the 
Blow with the stick strike at MILLS with the knife but did not know that he hit him until I saw the Blood- 
Question on the part of deft, by G. BERNARD by leave- 
Quest. Did you see MILLS advance on MOORE with the stick, and did you see & hear the lick- 
Answer- I did see him advance on MOORE with the stick, I did not see the lick the crowd being thick, but 
I heard the lick - The lick was struck by MILLS before the knife was used by MOORE- Though MOORE 
stood with the knife drawn he did not advance on MILLS but MILLS advanced on MOORE and further 
dept. saith not 

Test M. DICKINSON Wm. C. (his mark) MACGOUNDS 

Moses STOCKS, being also sworn according to law testifies as follows- 

I saw Mr. MILLS & Mr. MOORE engaged in a rustle or wrestling, and I did not know that either of them 
was mad- They wer e taken or pulled apart as they were taken apart I saw Mr. MOORE with his knife 
open- Then Mr. MILLS advanced on Mr. MOORE with a stick, and MILLS walked round a tree that was 
between them and when MOORE was close to him he struck MOORE with a stick- and after MILLS 
struck him with the stick MOORE went towards MILLS and struck him with the knife- 1 did not see but 
one stroke with the knife- he struck over the top of his head- They were separated after the Blow with 
the knife, and then MILLS struck MOORE another Blow with the stick- The stick was a heavy Crooked 
neck Hickory walking stick- After the parties were pulled apart the first time I heard MILLS say some- 
thing which indicated that there was an old grudge between them- 
Test M. DICKINSON Moses (his mark) STOCKS 

Doct. Wyatt M. BROWN being duly sworn also according to law, testified as follows- 1 was called to 
examine the said MILLS- 1 found him at the drug store- 1 examined the wound and found it quite a 
serious one - The wound was on the Neck, the Knife having entered just behind the caroted artery and 
extended to the bone back of the Neck- it had been bleeding a great deal but it was almost checked then- 
I think it a dangerous wound but the probability is that it will not prove fatal- 1 mean that the chances are 
in favor of his getting well- 
Question- What is the nature MOORE"S wound on his arm? 

Ansr. I dressed the wound of said MOORE, I found a small branch of the radial artery of the right arm 
cut & the skin broken- there was considerable bleeding- the same arm was bruised in two other places 
looking as though the injuries had been done by a blow with a stick Wyatt M. BROWN 

George F. MCGOWNS being duly Sworn according to law testified as f ollows- 

I saw Mr. MILLS strike at Mr. MOORE with a stick whether he hit him or not I do not Know- 1 saw Mr. 
MOORE strike at Mr. MILLS with a knife, whether he hit him or not I do not know- MOORE had no 
stick-

Henry Wilkins, Father of 64 children 

Daily Reflector, Feb. 18, 1907 

"Henry WILKINS, a colored man who lives on the land of Mr. J. C. TAYLOR, near Bethel, was in 
Greenville today. While in Munford's store trading he told Mr. R. S. MAY, one of the clerks, that he 
was 63 years old, had been married twice, and was the father of 64 children, 60 of whom are living. 
The old man may have been stretching, but if his story is true his is about the largest family on 
record for latter day times."

Sailing to Texas 

Arrived Safe (Wilmington Journal Weekly, Wilmington, NC, Fri., Jan. 24, 1851) 

"The Brig Calendar, from this port, for Galveston, Texas, is announced as having arrived there on the 30th 
ult. The Calendar left Wilmington last month, with some eighty persons, consisting of planters and their 
families and servants, chiefly from Sampson, Duplin, and New Hanover counties, who went to settle in 
Texas." 

Texas Immigration (Tarboro Southerner, Tarboro, NC, Sat., February 5, 1853) 

"On last Sunday week, a large body of very respectable citizens, left Rocky Mount for Texas. The com- 
pany consisted of 127 persons, white and black, under the protection of Mr. Chas. HARRISON, for many 
years past, a very estimable citizen of this county. All except Mr. HARRISON and family were from 
NASH. We see, the Wilmington Herald speaks of them, as from Edgecombe, which is a mistake. Ere this, 
we presume they are on nature's broad, rolling, dangerous highway, as they anticipated shipping from 
Wilmington. May they have a prosperous voyage, pleasant arrival, and realize their hoped for success 
and hapiness in their new home." 

Jesse Sumrell Bounty 

Kinston Journal, Thurs., April 1, 1880 
"Jesse SUMRELL, a little boy about 16 years old whose father was hung during the war for desertion, has 
recently obtained, through the exertions of his guardian S. B. WEST, a Government bounty of $1100." 

Delia Latham, Aged Colored Woman Dead 

Daily Reflector, Tues., April 10, 1934 
"Delia LATHAM, aged and highly respected colored woman, died at her home here yesterday afternoon 
at 6: 10 o'clock. Funeral services will be conducted from York Memorial A. M. E. Zion church Wednesday 
afternoon at 3 o'clock. "Aunt" Delia, as she was known to hundreds of persons, was a native of 
Greenville and spent all her life here." 

Mrs. Dempsey Gardner Dead 

Tarboro Southerner, Tarboro, NC, Sat., Sept. 7, 1872 
"Rare Longevity- We publish to-day the death of Mrs. GARDNER, who died last Monday, in her ninety- 
fifth year. Dempsey GARDNER, the husband of the deceased, died about six or seven months ago at the 
extreme age of 104. Mr. GARDNER and his wife lived together in matrimony for over 70 years."

Rodan/Roderman/Rodman Family Bible 

Holy Bible Containing The Old and New Testament Translated out of the Tongues; South Western Co., 
publishers and book seller, Nashville, Term. Contributed by Frank M. Clark. According to Frank Clark, 
historian for the Clark and Rodan families, he searched for many years to find a Clark or Rodan family 
Bible. In 1989, Frank discovered a cousin, Hazel B. Boomer Barden, owned the Rodan family Bible. She 
returned to her home in New York and mailed photocopies of the family listings to Frank. The Bible was 
originally the property of Rev. A. J. Rodan of Pantego, Beaufort Co., NC until his death on Nov. 26, 1898. 
It then was owned by his son, Abner Jerome Rodan, Jr., who died in Kinston, NC on Apr. 26, 1971. At his 
death the bible came into the possession of his cousin, Juanita Speller Steinbergen Atkins. After her death 
on April 16, 1990 in New York City, the bible went to her cousin, Hazel B. Boomer Barden of Mt. Vernon, 
NY. After Hazel died on Nov. 12, 2001 in Newburgh, NY, the bible became the property of her daughter, 
Beverly Rose Barden Johns. In the year 2002, the bible became the property of Hazel Barden's neice, Hazel 
R McCloud Phillips of District Heights, MD. These dates appear to be taken from an earlier record or 
bible.
